Monica and Kyle's Whaling Wedding | New Bedford Whaling Museum, MA

Here it is! The wedding we've all been waiting for... Kyle and Monica's Whaling Museum wedding was gorgeous from beginning to end and I'm so excited that I got to be there to capture every last detail for them so they can cherish it forever. We started the day at a bridesmaid's house that made the perfect getting ready location. There was the occasional Portuguese back and forth and I was quickly filled in with what was transpiring, but it made this particular wedding all the more unique. Everyone was bustling about getting ready to celebrate Monica and Kyle...

Meanwhile, Chris was spending some time with the guys and caught everything from the details, to the boys playing hockey.

After the girls took a trolley ride to the Church Our Lady of Mt Carmel, it was time for Monica to walk down the aisle to meet her love Kyle.  He had the biggest smile as soon as he saw her and even walked up to her because he couldn't wait a second longer to marry her.

After the ceremony we found a cozy little courtyard by the Whaling Museum to snap a few portraits of the newlyweds.  They were both on cloud 9, and I think by these photos... you can tell.

The reception details were out of this world perfect.  The chandeliers looked like stars in the night sky and made the ceiling seem non existent. It felt like we were all outside on a beautiful summer night.

After numerous hours of dancing (the likes of which I've never seen before...ahem.. the groom was break dancing), Monica and Kyle were sent off with the ultimate flare... a sparkler exit under the whale itself. Congratulations Monica and Kyle.  If your life together is anything like your wedding, you'll be dancing together till the end of time.  Here's to you.
